Betty Crocker to the Rescue

A cute new set of Betty Crocker recipe cards has recently come out, beckoning a new generation to cook the kitschy classics. And for your amusement there’s a whole website devoted to the 1971 recipe card collection. It’s full of dishes you wouldn’t dream of serving and food photography you’re almost certain was intended to repulse. While these two things alone will bring hours of enjoyment, it’s the commentary that is truly hysterical. It’s witty and entertaining and the perfect diversion if you happen to be bored at the office.
